M&E firm Hulse goes under with loss of 160 jobs

Electrical contractor Hulse has ceased trading after 26 years with the loss of 160 jobs.

The £25m turnover firm has worked on a range of prestigious contracts including Birmingham’s Edgbaston cricket ground.

It worked with major contractors including Lend Lease, Laing O’Rourke and Redrow.

David Bennett and David Dunckley of Grant Thornton were appointed join administrative receivers of the Sutton Coldfield-based company last month.

Mr Bennett said: “Hulse had been suffering cash flow difficulties and although various solutions had been explored by the directors to save the business, none were ultimately successful.”

The company was founded by chairman Steve Hulse in 1985 and at the time of the administration it was being run by managing director Stuart Hulse together with directors John Hulse, Ian Lambert, John Bird and Ricky Cabrey.

Job losses will hit the company’s Sutton Coldfield HQ and a satellite office in Glasgow.
